Kathryn begins (and extends) her adventures with amino sugars!

Kathryn Dawe joined us from the Department of Chemistry at Memorial for a summer research project in May 2015 on method development for the quantitative analysis of amino sugars in soils and other matrices. During the summer, Kathryn developed digestion and recovery methods and presented her results at the second NL-BELT workshop in Corner Brook, NL in July. Kathryn has continued this work with us in collaboration with Drs. Cora Young (Chemistry) and Susan Ziegler (Earth Science) for her Honours' thesis project for the academic year!
